The ring is delightful and exactly what I wanted, thank you. I really appreciated the way the seller communicated with me not only about my stated preference of ring but then again when she realized my preferred ring didn't have my preferred plain band on it. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from this seller again.

About

steampunk and found art. nuff said.

I started making steampunk creations in the summer of 2009, when I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, freaked out about that (it's all good now!), and needed to get as far away from my history PhD as possible. Now I'm a history professor, and I still make jewelry and robots for the sense of instant gratification, the "I made this today!" feeling of success.

In my historical life, I'm fascinated with wunderkammern / cabinets of curiosity / the grotesque / bodies / unusual anatomies, and I'm working on turning my dissertation into a book on conjoined twins and other "monsters" in early modern England.

Cheers!

    I'm a history professor who needed a creative outlet. My book-in-progress is on knowledge transfer about monsters (conjoined twins and the like) in early modern Britain.
